The Difference Between the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport

When looking at newer Volkswagen models, you may have come across the all-new 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. “But wait,” you may be thinking; “isn’t there already a 2020 VW Atlas?” While the answer is yes, there are some key differences between each model. We decided to take a closer look at Neftin Volkswagen in the Thousand Oaks area. See what we found out below!

Engine and Interior Comparison Between Each 2020 Volkswagen Model

When popping open the hood, both engine lineups for the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas and 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport are the same. With both models receiving the same 2.0L Turbo and 3.6L V6 engine options models have similar engine specifications. Yet, the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport is a few hundred pounds lighter than the VW Atlas.

Looking at the interiors, both 2020 models look similar outside of the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport’s two-toned leather color system, which gives off a modern and updated look. Meanwhile, the 2020 VW Atlas Has its own unique style with its textured detailing.

The major differences between each model come in its sizing. For its impressive performance, the 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport is a smaller version of its counterpart. Standing a little over two inches shorter, the VW Atlas Cross Sport comes off as a two-row crossover to attract those who want the added cargo space with fewer passengers – namely couples and younger or smaller families. They can still receive the added benefits of what the 2020 VW Atlas can cover without the two additional seats and larger confines.
